Research Seminar in Computer Generated Music
This course is an opportunity for students to pursue an independent research project in computer music. Students regularly present their research and project progress in weekly seminar-style class meetings. In addition, projects in progress are documented on the web.
This is a 4-unit course. It can be taken for 2 or 3 units to accommodate grad students, but everyone is expected to work at the 4-unit level.
Time & Place
Tuesday and Thursday
4:30pm-5:30pm PDT in the *virtual* CCRMA Classroom (Canvas-hosted Zoom!)
Students can choose between a research project, a musical/artistic project or a combination of both. Projects require a substantial amount of documentation, and will be presented in the form of a website. The deliverables are:
- Weekly progress reports: in-class critiques and documentation, in a form of progress report logs (blogs)
- A final website with all the detailed descriptions, progress report logs, final presentation / demo / performance / video, and any data needed to reproduce your results (where applicable) (tips on creating research websites)
The grading criteria will be based on:
- Creativity: is it a novel idea or creative solution to a problem?
- Execution: how well crafted is the project?
- Presentation: are your deliverables well presented and explained?
- Own-goal achievements: did you achieve your own goals that you set out for the project?
